In the Youtube video below with Gary Stearman the discussion was about Pentecost and how it relates to the Rapture.
Exodus 19:1,2…..In the “third month” ( Sivan ) after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on “that very day” they came into the wilderness of Sinai. When they set out from Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of the mountain…….( v. 10 )…”The Lord also said to Moses, “Go to the peole and consecreate them “today” and “tomorrow” ( that’s two days ), and let them wash their garments;”…..( v. 11 )…”And let them be ready for the “third day” ( 3rd day of Sivan – in the text ), for “on the third day” the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.”
In John 2:1 it states….”On the “third day” there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee…etc..etc..”
The reference to the “third day” in this passge of John’s gospel is a reference to “Tuesday” which is the “third day” of the week. But this mentioning here of the “third day” also carries with it “great prophetic significance” in reference to the “1000 year reign of Christ” which will be the beginning of the “third day” from Christ’s first advent.
2 Peter 3:8 …..But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.
2000 years from Christ’s first advent to His second advent ( at the end of the tribulation period ) + The 1000 year reign of Christ = the third day, or 3000 years.
And so there is going to be a “wedding in Cana” ( The land of Caanan, God’s land ) on the “third day” when Christ returns in order to restore Israel unto Himself.
Rev. 19:9……”Then he said to me, write, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”
Christ is going to “marry Israel” when He returns. The “marriage supper of the Lamb” mentioned here in Rev. 19:9 is therefore a “parabolic picture” and a reference to the time when Christ returns to the earth in order to restore Israel and set up His 1000 year kingdom upon the earth, in which ONLY the believing remnant of Israel will be invited too ( Matt. 25 / parable of the 10 virgins is about “believing and spiritually prepared remnant of Israel” ( five wise virgins ), and the unbelieving and spiritually uprepared Israel ( five foolish virgins ) at the close of the tribulation period when Christ returns. ‘
Therefore the “marriage supper of the Lamb” takes place “on the earth” at the time of Christ’s second advent to, and of which at that time “only those” who have “come to faith in the Messiah”, and who were therefore spiritally ready ( of both the Jew and Gentile ) who will be the only ones who will be “invited” to this marriage supper, which is a “parabolic picture” of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ.
Jesus said the following to His disciples in the upper room on the night He was betrayed.
Matthew 26:26-29………”While they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on “until that day when I drink it new with you” in My Father’s kingdom.”
Here we see that Jesus is telling His disciples that He will NOT eat nor drink with them again UNTIL He returns in order to “setup” His Father’s kingdom upon the earth….Matt. 6:9,10…..”Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed by Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven….etc..etc..”
The earthly kingdom of God the Father is the “third day” ( A 1000 years is as “one day” ).
Now what is interesting is the fact that the terms Church and Cana in Hebrew both have the gematria value of 155.
Church / Kaph = 20 Nun = 50 Sameck = 60 Yod = 10 Yod = 10 Hay = 5 / total = 155
Cana / Koph = 100 Nun = 50 Hay = 5 / total = 155
Redemption / Pe = 80 Daleth = 4 Vav = 6 Tav = 400 / total = 490
The believer is “sealed” by the Holy Spirit for the “day of redemption” ( Redemption of the believers physical body – Eph. 4:30 )
Church 155 + Cana 155 + Redemption 490 = 800………. Pentecost = 800
Exodus chapters 18 and 19 are the chapters where Israel is at Mount Sinai receiving the “Law” of God. And it is interesting to note here that the terms……”The Pentecost” ( encoded at a skip of 365 ), and the term “Church” are both encoded in these two chapters. Israel left Egypt on the first day of Sivan” and came to Mount Sinai. Then two days later ( on the third day of Sivan ) God came down on the mountain.
I want to show you some interesting gematria here in relationship to the month of Sivan and the day of Pentecost. The gematria value for Sivan = 776, and also the gematria value for the present Jewish year of 5776 = 776.
Pentecost has been assigned by the Jews to always fall on the 6th day of Sivan. There are reasons as to why this is, but of which I will not address this issue here. But I find the following very interesting in light of the fact that God came down on Mount Sinai on the 3rd Sivan ( the third day ). And so I just want to take the numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 which are going to represent the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th of Sivan and do the following.
3 x 4 x 5 = 60 ( the gematria value for the Hebrew term Bride = 60 ) x 6 = 360 ( A biblical year consists of 360 day years ) x 7 = 2520 ( which is the amount of days of the seven year tribulation period ).
So hypothetically speaking here we could “suggest” ( by way of speculation ) that the 5th Sivan produces the “Bride”, and the 6th Sivan which is Pentecost begins the 360 day years x 7 ( 7th sivan ) which then starts the 2520 days of the tribulation period. Now this is just hypothetical speculation here, but I find this “mathematical pattern” extremely intriguing to say the least!”
Until he comes!
